Tools of Titans

If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.

Have, no fear. You've got one chance here to do amazing things, and being afraid of being wrong or making a mistake or fumbling is just not how you do something of impact.

If you have a very clear vision of where you want to go, then the rest of it is much easier.

Think long-term.

Investing in yourself is the most important investment you'll ever make in your life.

You realize that you will never be the best-looking person in the room. You'll never be the smartest person in the room. You'll never be the most educated, the most well-versed. You can never compete on those levels. But what you can always compete on, the true egalitarian aspect to success, is hard work.

There is no need to wait. Why can't you do this now?

What worked and what didn't.

Be the silence that listens.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'Wow! What a Ride!'

To become "succesful", you have to say yes to a lot of experiments. To learn what you're best at, or what you're most passionate about, you have to throw a lot against the wall.

The culture of news is a culture without a nuance.

Stay humble or get humbled.

You should try to slay dragons. We read about and admire the people who did things thaT were basically considered to be impossible. That's what makes the world a better place to live.

Life is to short to be busy.

The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.

Aim for the heart, not the head.

A person's success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.
